‘I am an amateur photographer living on the Isle of Lewis.
I go out often and love the spectacular hills Lewis has to offer. It’s so varied around the coast with beaches, chimneys and cliffs. All my favorite types of photography. When trying to come up with something new, I usually leave all my camera gear at home and use my phone to snap photos while researching new spots and different compositions. It is quite tiring to transport all the material to new places, because you are not quite sure at the beginning what you need. That’s why I love my phone.
Being able to move around more easily and take a photo with a phone allows me to focus on particular areas that I’m walking so I can come back later with my camera.
The photo above was taken on an iPhone 12 Pro Max. I took the live shot so I could then use the phone’s long exposure feature to capture the movement in the misty water.
Since it was a phone, I moved it around to get the scene I liked here and knelt with it not far from the sand. The iPhone has a wide range of focal lengths, which gives me a good idea of what I want in the shot.
